Curd, dahi, or simply yoghurt is a heavenly treat on itself, but it can also be used in a variety of dishes, creating a taste like no other. With its smooth texture, cooling effect, and tangy taste, Indian curd is somewhat different from other yoghurts. It can be used in a variety of ways from the classic summer drink Lassi to yummy sweets and delicious Raita sauce. Here are 9 mouth-watering dishes from curd you should try at least once.
This is a traditional snack from the north of India with a sweet-and-sour taste and gentle texture. Dumplings made from dal or a mixture of dals are deep fried and served with flavourful mint chutney, curd, and a handful of pomegranate for added crunchiness.
Flax Seed Raita
This dish is simple, easy to make, and features more health benefits than we can count. Flax seeds are known to be rich in Omega-3 fatty acids that boost your immunity and reduce the risk of heart problems, while curd itself is rich in calcium that is essential to our bones’ health. Throw in some mint and grated bottle gourd and voila! You have a healthy addition to any meal.
Shrikhand is a popular Indian dish that is really easy to make. Beat some hung curd (strained of all liquid) with sugar to make the base for your delicious shrikhand, then add some saffron and beat again, and finally garnish it with some dry fruits, cardamom, almonds, or sunflower seeds.
